Bangladesh A 162 for 3 (Litton 54, Shadman 40, Mutombodzi 2-27) trail Zimbabwe A 206 by 44 runs

Bangladesh A took their time against Zimbabwe A on the second day of the first unofficial Test in Cox's Bazar. At stumps, they were 162 for 3 on a day when nearly two hours of play was lost to rain.

Despite the interruption, the hosts could only add 132 runs in 79 overs. Litton Das made 54 before being caught behind off left-arm spinner Wellington Masakadza in the 34th over, after adding 76 for the first wicket with Shadman Islam.

Shadman made 40 in almost fours hours, scoring just two fours during his 179-ball knock. He was eventually dismissed by the legspinner Tinotenda Mutombodzi. Marshall Ayub got out for 20, also to Mutombodzi, after being caught by Kudakwashe Munyede.

Raqibul Hasan and captain Naeem Islam then added 37 runs in 29.1 overs during their unbroken fourth-wicket stand.
